Laramie County Clerk Candidate Leaving Current Job

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Laramie County's grant manager will leave his job because he is running for Laramie County clerk and the federal government says he'll be breaking the law if he does both. Tim Thorson said this week his last day as grant manager for the county will be Aug. 5. He made his decision after he received a letter from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel saying that he could not run for partisan political office while working in a position with "activities funded by federal loans or grants." Thorson had requested the government's opinion.
The Democrat is running against incumbent Republican Debbye Lathrop. They will face each other in the Nov. 7 election.
